This project was an attempt to sew a dress for my sister-in-law, who had just given birth and could have used some comfy clothing that was breast-feeding friendly. The result? A UFO buried in my to-do pile since the modifications did not work out as planned. Additionally, the cotton fabric has a very soft/nice hand, but has very poor recovery and I found that aspect to be rather annoying.
Using the standard pattern, except eliminating the collar and pockets, and changing the shoulders to be separated @ shoulder seam-- resulting in straps that could overlap and button. I attempted a buttonhole on one strap and found it to be a very, very terrible idea since I had not stabilized the fabric with interfacing. The buttonhole stretched out of place and when I tried to pick the fine stitches I found myself snagging the fabric. What a mess.
It was a great idea: a stretchy, comfy dress that buttons/unbuttons easily at each shoulder for breastfeeding. I'll get it figured out someday.
Edit: I just sewed the straps together, overlapping, and now wear this as a dress for work.
